CVU Students and Faculty head to North Carolina for a great cause

Mr. Kyler Murray &  Mr. Colin Lach 

Over Spring Break CVU students and Faculty traveled to North Carolina to take part in the Habitat for Humanity program. This was the 15th year CVUHS has taken part in this trip.

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and in approximately 70 countries around the world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and they work to make that a reality.

This year’s volunteers travelled 840 miles to Winston Salem, North Carolina to help build houses for those in need. They stopped on the way there and the way back at Washington, DC, where they had free time to do what they wanted.

Once CVU students and faculty had arrived at the Habitat for Humanity center in Winston Salem, North Carolina volunteers immediately got to work helping build houses or whatever they were needed to do.

Volunteers had to work really hard over the trip but still many found it to be a great experience. Pam Gover a part of CVU faculty who took part in the trip said, “If I had the opportunity again I would definitely do it, it’s for a great cause and I actually really enjoyed myself.”

This is an annual trip for the CVU community, if you would like to get involved and make a difference as well, you can talk to CVU Director Dan Shepardson about how to be a part of the trip next year.
